Edwardian Style Picnic Basket to Enhance Your Visit 

Why not enjoy a picnic during warmer months or a dinner basket to enjoy in your room during the winter?  Prepared by Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast each basket is for two people and will offer the following:  your choice of one main entree (rosemary roasted Cornish game hen, roast beef sandwich with creamy horseradish sauce, or vegetarian Cornish pasties) along with appropriate sides, a small relish platter, chips, and a dessert.  Also choose a beverage from ice tea, lemonade, or bottled water.  Of course we’ll also pack a blanket and appropriate utensils.

Winterthur is only 20-25 minutes from Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast and offers many beautiful places for outdoor dining such as Sycamore Hill and along Clenny Run, which offers lovely vistas and the sound of the burbling brook.  They welcome you to walk on the grass and enjoy your picnic under the shade of one of their stately trees from 10 AM to dusk.  If the weather is too cold to dine outside, we’ll deliver your basket to your room. The cost of the picnic for two people is $55.00 plus 6% tax.  We do need 48 hours’ notice.
